Are you ready for "The 4-Hour Workweek?"
June 04, 2007
In this issue:
"The 4-Hour Workweek" and what it tells us about our assumptions and views of our careers and lives.
As promised in last month's issue, I'm launching my very first book giveaway.
After reading "The 4-Hour Workweek" by Tim Ferriss, I've already come up with several ideas and ways to change my own career future.
We stand at the edge of a revolution in lifestyle and career assumptions and beliefs. No longer do many people want to sacrifice 30 years of their lives doing something they may not enjoy, focused on "deferred happiness" via retirement, when many of their best years lay behind them. Perhaps you're in this group. Wondering why you should spend so much time doing something that doesn't bring happiness, and looking for a way to really live now and spend all your time doing what you want to do, being the person you want to be.
You can read more about the book here: "The 4-Hour Workweek"
To sign up for the giveaway, simply follow the link below and fill in the entry form. Good luck!
p.s. Everyone who signs up will receive a complimentary copy of Charles Burke's e-book, "Inside the Minds of Winners."
I have to admit that I was somewhat skeptical when I first heard about "The 4-Hour Workweek." I have two children, a husband, a dog, mortgage payment, bills, etc. How can I possibly think about making a lifestyle change when I have all of these responsibilities?
Being the curious person I am, I had to read the book and find out for myself what all the hype was about. The book has received mostly rave reviews, however, there are still some skeptics. I imagine the skeptics are people who can't possibly challenge the assumptions we, as a society, have come to embrace. The most popular being that we must work for 30-40 years and that our reward will be retirement in later years.
Tim Ferriss equates Retirement to Worst-Case Scenario Insurance. He elaborates on why our assumptions of retirement are flawed. For one, he says "It is predicated on the assumption that you dislike what you are doing during the most physically capable years of your life. This is a nonstarter - nothing can justify that sacrifice."
Although some of the ideas and suggestions in the book may seem a little over the top for many, there are also so many ideas within that you're bound to discover something that you can start doing NOW to realize your own dreams.
I created my website to help people like you discover your passions and how to find the perfect career. Many people don't want to own their own business, and that's okay. "The 4-Hour Workweek" discusses ways to live your dreams even while working for someone else.
Are you unhappy with your job or career, but afraid to make any changes? If this is you, I encourage you to sign up for our giveaway, borrow the book from your local library (if they have it), or go ahead and purchase your own copy if you simply can't wait. If you'd like to get f'ree preview chapters, as well as some bonuses, you can go directly to Tim's website to find out more:

I will be accepting submissions until June 30th, so don't delay!
As I implement some of the changes I discovered from "The 4-Hour Workweek," I'll be posting them to my blog. Perhaps these insights can help you take action on things you know you need to do in your own life. My life is probably very similar to many of yours. I'm determined to live my life according to my terms, and know that many of you want to do the same. I'd love to hear feedback from everyone who reads the book!
Please forward this newsletter to your friends!
